Emachine t3604, computer shut down. then restarted showing hard disc error and it never started again. the only thing that shows when booting is the e symbol with f2 or f10 options for Bios. then it goes straight to an error message. the screen is black. and you cant type anything but to press enter then the next page will ask you to press ctl alt delete to restart and it just cycles that way without going anywhere ?

Hello,
I'm sorry to say this but your hard drive may be faulty and need a replacement. Your files might still be retrievable but you will need to take it to a repair center to get it retrieved or plug it as an external hard drive and try to retrieve data yourself. But nevertheless, it seems like your hard drive gave in and will need to be replaced with a new one..

Thanks,
Lolita

    You will have to purchase an external hard drive enclosure and plug your hard drive in there. Outside the enclosure will have a usb connection to connect to the back of the computer.

How do i change boot order on emachine t3604


You will need to change the boot order in the bios set-up.
Turn your computer off, and turn it n again (alternatively Restart it) These things may be initiated by clicking the Windows button at the bottom left of tour screen, and from the shut down drop down menu selecting the appropriate option) As your computer is starting up, and the Emachines logo appears on the screen
"Press the "Tab" key repetitatively: If that fails to take you into the BIOSsetup, repeat and try either the "Escape," "Delete," or "F2" keys instead of the Tab key.
Once in the BIOS setu[p, Look through the options until see Boot order, and then change that to CD first, HD 2nd. Exit the BIOS setup with save changes option. Done.

Correct bios booting for emachines d525


to get into the settings you have to find the key, find it in the manual, popular keys are f2 or delete. there can be others. shut down the computer and restart press the f2 key several times before the computer beeps if f2 was the key , you can now change the boot mode . I like to have mine set to first dvd next usb then hard disc. then on start up it looks to boot in that order. if no dvd or usb present it boots from the hard disc.

Smart failure.. bootmgr is missing..I have recovery discs but dvd player is not working


Yes, you can make USB boot drive. However main problem is the Smart... error. It is your hard drive. You need to fix that first! Try reseating the drive. Next go into BIOS by pressing F key during boot. Might be F2? Make sure BIOS recognizes the hard drive.

Once you get the drive going again, you can start the install / repair again. USB drive tool.

Emachine E528 Laptop is saying a disk read error occured push ctrl+alt+delete an it will restart


The error that you are getting indicates that the system is not able to detect the Hard Drive. We would need to confirm if the Hard Drive is detected in the system BIOS or not. For that we would need to turn off the computer. Turn on the computer and start hitting F2 key to reach BIOS. On the First page of BIOS it should show you the Hard Disk Drive with name and Number. If it shows all drives and none or not detected then it means the hard drive is not getting detected by the system. If you can open the Laptop and reach the Hard Disk Drive you can try to re-seat it to see if it gets detected. If it still remains undetected, Its time to replace the Hard Disk Drive.

Please try the above steps and get back for any further assistance or clarification

KDL52EX700 shuts down and restarts


If it is showing a blue scree of death (BSOD) and shuts down before you can read the error message try this:
Turn the computer off, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Scroll down below Safe Mode and you will see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. Select it and reboot your machine. Next time it boots up you will be able to read the error message. You'll probably need a system disc or repair disc to fix the blue screen error message.

The problem of my hp pavilion dv5 is this, i want my laptop to be back on its original state so i tried system restore. i have my recovery discs aside from the built-in recovery partition. i inserted the...


You have formatted the hard drive (containing Boot Manager) using recovery disk 1.
That's why the error message.

Just insert disk 1 again.
Shut down the computer (press & hold the power button for a minute).
Restart.

Follow the instructions that come up.

If it doesn't help, reseat the hard drive. (open the back cover, take out hard drive, reconnect it)
Also you may go to BIOS (tap F1 while booting) and set the cd-drive as the first boot device.

Hope it helps.

Emachince t3604 with vista wont boot just a blank screen tried to get bios screen safe mode etc. but nothing shows on the monitor. n e advice?


Make sure --- turn power off, leave off for 30 seconds. Power up again, holding the F2 key down. This WILL take your eMachines into Setup (BIOS). If it doesn't then your keyboard is most likely defective. If it does get you to setup, press F10 and Enter. Reboot with Ctrl+Alt+Del and this time hold the F8 key down ... just hold it down till something happens, choose Start in Safe Mode with Network Support. Again if F8 doesn't work probly says Keyboard is bad. This is for whatever Operating System you are using.

Tried to do a restore with restore disc that came with the comput


There seems to be a problem with the operating system that is being installed. This often happens if you use the restore disks that came from another computer.

Are you sure that you used the disks that came with that exact computer? Does it flash a blue screen right before restarting the cycle?

Try the restore over again and if the problem persists, you may have to either order new restore disks for your computer or buy a fresh copy of Windows XP.

Shuts self off during start up


Sounds like there could be a major problem with the hard drive.

Have you got an XP or Vista cd? NOT a restore cd.

On start up goes in a continuous restart cycle


There is usually a hot key you can press during boot up to start recovery (F11 is typical) This will guide you through the recovery process. I would first check all of your cables going to your hard drive, and also the one going from the hard drive to the motherboard. See if that helps. Best of luck to you!
